Wolverine's adamantium skeleton

#1 Posted by Noctis (1396 posts) - - Show Bio

Ok, so I think we all know that we need our bone marrow to produce new blood cells in our bodies. But if Wolverine's skeleton is completely coved in adamantium then where does he get his new blood cells from?

@Noctis:
it's not completely covered and it's a comic book.

Agreed. Stop thinking too hard on things, okay fine the science may not be 100% correct, just learn to live with it and enjoy the stories for what they are. When you start thinking into things like this too much, it can ruin the stories and characters for you.

When he gets his back broken it is explained that it doesn't cover all of his bone structure, because then he could not move at all, so the new blood cells must be released somehow.

O_O it comes out by his joints because they are obviously not covered or his body wouldn't bend

here's some more questions  
Why didn't Bruce Banner and Rick Jones get burnt to ash when that gamma bomb went off? 
Why did radiation give spiderman super powers instead of cancer? 
Why did Daredevil get powers from toxic waste instead of dying a horrible painful death? 
The answer is simple They're comics

His skeleton isn't covered in Adamantium, his skeleton is bonded on a molecular level with Adamantium, it's a hybrid of  metal and bone. The Adamantium doesn't interfere with the normal biological processes of bone, it's essentially a biological metal.

 Calm down guys. I'm just asking a curious question. You're the ones taking my question too seriously.
